Colleges & Universities

HIGHER EDUCATION AS ANCHOR INSTITUTIONS

  • Colleges and Universities are the key aggregators fueling the economies of the future: talent, innovation and technology. Together, these resources are being leveraged to create new businesses, reinvent legacy industries and strengthen the communities these institutions call home. Colleges and Universities aren't doing this alone, though; they are increasingly partnering with private sector businesses and economic and community development organizations to commercialize technology, develop innovative workforce development programs and build new mixed-use centers.
